Response Statements

Response Statement - Crooked-stem Aster

This perennial aster is restricted in Canada to a small area of the Carolinian forest near the shore of Lake Erie in Ontario. The species has experienced historic declines, but no recent losses have been documented and overall numbers appear to be stable. Invasive plants occur at a number of sites and have the potential to negatively impact the species in the future. Additional threats include indirect impacts of Emerald Ash Borer, and roadside maintenance. The species has a restricted distribution in Canada, and its persistence will likely require ongoing monitoring and management of invasive species.
